This weekend marks the debut of Electric Daisy Carnival brought to you by Budweiser, Only Much Louder and Insomniac. In many ways, this brings a paradigm shift to the Dance Music scene in India. This is many ways the first Foreign Direct Investment in the Dance Music in India, the first big international festival to do a multi-day event that too in NCR region.
A 2 day dance music extravaganza with some of the best names in the dance music scene at the moment, exaggerated production standards at a venue that has so much potential. EDC India will be held on 12th and 13th November at Buddh International circuit. You can get your tickets here – insider.in In many ways EDC India is a game changer, we list 7 such reasons
OML’s foray into Dance Music
The OML team has been known for fantastic events, comedy fests and much more for many years. They have set a benchmark for quality Festivals in India. Since 2010 NH7, have been termed as the Happiest Festival of the country. It was a matter of time that OML put up a Dance music Festival, nothing better than Electric Daisy Carnival.
EDC finally comes to India
Previously we have seen brands like Sensation host an event in Hyderabad and Tomorrowland’s Unite take place in Mumbai & Hyderabad but EDC India is special. This will be a full blown 2 day dance music extravaganza with top notch production and fantastic artists. Electric Daisy carnival hosts plenty of events across the US & South America and they are top of the league.
Great platform for Indian artists
EDC provides a great platform for domestic Indian acts to play for a large crowd. Not only this, with EDC’s strong network around the world, you never know that the likes of Nucleya or Lost Stories or Arjun Vagale might just get a slot at EDC Las Vegas next year!
Delhi finally gets its own dance music festival
The NCR region never did really have a dance music festival, Apart from Nh7 they have nothing to talk big about! So here comes Electric Daisy Carnival to the most iconic venues in the country – Buddh International circuit. Delhi, it is your chance to feel the bass and shine!
Production standards will set a new benchmark
Insomniac is known for its production standard worldwide and we trust EDC India will set a benchmark for dance music fests in India. EDC India will bring unforgettable combination of first-class sound, out-of-this-world production, ornately costumed performers, and beautiful interactive art to thousands of new electronic music fans!
Dreamstate Stage India
Just what the doctor ordered for Trance in India, Dreamstate will bring the much needed Hurrah for the trance fans in India. With Markus Shulz, Ferry Corsten and Vini Vici headlining the event, it will be a belter of a day at the Circuit Grounds. Albeit we would have been happier with more uplifting trance on the lineup, maybe next time!
Solid Indian contingency
Almost 60% of the lineup is from India, which speaks volumes of the lineup curators. There is definitely very strong talent in the country and great to see EDC India will harness that. We are really excited to see Nucleya, Lost Stories, Peal, Sandunes and Seque3l’s sets at the festival.
